Senator Moran Looking For Summer Interns

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas has announced he is accepting applications for paid congressional internships in his Washington, D.C., and Kansas offices for summer 2015.

Previously, Moran has had interns from Osborne County and other counties in our listening area.

An internship in Sen. Moran’s office – either legislative or communications – provides a unique opportunity to work closely with Senate staff on behalf of the state of Kansas. Legislative interns will gain a better understanding of the legislative process in the U.S. Congress, and develop knowledge and professional skills valuable to future career pursuits. Communications internships provide a unique opportunity to learn about how political communications and the legislative process intersect, and gain practical knowledge about the inner workings of a fast-paced press office.

The intern program is open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students – or recent graduates – who have strong interest in public service and government and have achieved academic excellence. Applicants for a communications internship should possess exceptional writing and communication skills, knowledge of AP style, experience in digital media, and follow current events closely.

The application deadline for summer 2015 internships is Friday, March 6, 2015. Application forms can be obtained and completed under the “Services” section of Sen. Moran’s website at Applicants should submit a completed application form, resume, academic transcript, two letters of recommendation and a cover letter explaining the applicant’s interest in public service and goals of serving as an intern. Please submit required materials to: [email protected]

For questions, please contact Sen. Moran’s office at [email protected] or call 202-224-6521 and request to speak with the Intern Coordinator.
